Arena: The Contest


In a world unified by The Empire, where it is forbidden to raise armies and make war all major conflicts get solved in the Arena. There, the best fighters represent the destiny and interests of entire nations. Such fighters are, deservedly so, called Heroes, and their battles, the epicenter of the society. But with an ancient mystery about to be unveiled, how long can this delicate balance of power be sustained?

In Arena: The Contest, a turn-based tactical combat game, players recruit from a wide pool of Heroes, to play among two fully and equally developed modes. In Competitive Mode (PvP), teams fight each other in a deeply tactical and strategic skirmish.
